DAVID HURN – Magnum A Personal Journey

Tuesday 4th November 2014, 6:30pm – 8:30pm, The Box, £5 (£4 for members/concessions)
One of this country’s most influential photographers and teachers, David Hurn of Magnum reveals all in what he is calling ‘a 60 year self indulgent meander through friends and photograph whilst at no time suffering from malnutrition’.  
Born in the UK but of Welsh descent, David is a self-taught photographer who began his career in 1955 as an assistant at the Reflex Agency. He gained his early reputation as a freelance photographer with his reportage of the 1956 Hungarian revolution, but he eventually turned away from coverage of current affairs preferring to take a more personal approach to photography.    
He became an associate member of Magnum in 1965, and a full member in 1967. In 1973 he set up the famous School of Documentary Photography in Newport, Wales. He stepped away from this role in 1989 and has since been in constant demand; lecturing and leading workshops around the world.
Open Session at Photoforum
2nd December 2014, 6:30pm – 8:30pm, The Box, £5 (£4 for members/concessions)  
We would like our Photoforum regulars and newcomers to share their photographs at this Open Session.
The session will be led by photographer, author and teacher, Paul Hill, but these sessions are about you and your photographs. The work may provoke lively discussions about the issues the pictures raise. Who knows? But you will certainly have the opportunity to ‘expose yourself’ in front of an informed audience of fellow practitioners and enthusiasts, and get the sort of feedback that may help move the work forward, or even get it published or exhibited.
If you want to show your work (maximum 12 images - as files or prints - to give an opportunity for discussion), please contact Paul in advance at
